Maintaining Appropriate Student Behavior Slide2

How to monitor student behavior- Mr. Aaron


Monitoring Student Behavior

Two important categories of behavior

1. Student involvement in learning activities.

(attention during presentations & discussions, progress on seatwork)

2. Student compliance with classroom rules and procedures.

***Key- MUST have a clear set of expectations (CEP)Slide4

Monitoring Student Behavior

Effective monitoring techniques

-be able to see the faces of all students

-scan the room frequently

-monitor the class by walking around and checking individual student’s progress

-don’t “talk to the chalkboard”

-begin seatwork as a whole group activity

-monitor students’ grades and have them keep recordsSlide5

How to be consistent- Mr. Matt Joyner Slide6


What is consistency?

Maintaining the same expectations for behaviors that are appropriate or inappropriate in particular activities.

- Applicable to all students in every situation, no exceptions should be made

- Inconsistency can lead to students testing the boundaries and behaving inappropriately Slide7


Ex. If the penalty for tardiness is a detention, then the rule must be enforced all the time.

However, there are exceptions….

Some students have particular individualized programs that need to be followed

Utilize good judgment when it comes to extending deadlines

Talking during group work and seatwork

-maintain and discuss rules and guidelines for student talk Slide8


Undesirable inconsistency usually arises from

Procedures or rules are not reasonable, workable, or appropriate

Teacher fails to monitor behavior

Teacher is not consistent with enforcing penalties

Ways to address inconstancy

re-teach procedure, modify and reintroduce it, or abandon it if it doesn’t work. Slide9

How to manage inappropriate behavior- Mr. Tyler McBride Slide10

Prompt Management of Inappropriate Behavior

Prompt management helps prevent escalation

Areas of concern include: lack of involvement, work avoidance, obvious violations of classroom rules and procedures


” – detect off task behavior and stop it before it happens

Do not ignore off task behavior, address it directly and calmlySlide11

Prompt Management of Inappropriate Behavior

Four Ways






nappropriate Behavior

Proximity- make eye contact, move closer to the student, use a signal (such as finger to the lips)

2. Simply remind the student/class of the appropriate procedure

3. When a student is off task, redirect his/her attention to the task

4. Ask or tell the student to stop the inappropriate behavior. Then, monitor until it stops. Slide12

Prompt Management of Inappropriate Behavior


If you are unable to address the student about his/her behavior at the time, discuss it privately with him/her later

-Send student to the hall or to a time-out desk if they are being disruptiveSlide13

How to build a positive climate- Mr. Jeff Ayers Slide14

Building A Positive Climate

Keep a positive perspective and avoiding dwelling on student misbehavior or inadequacies

Students need specific corrective feedback to know what to improve (avoid negative comments!)

Students should look forward to class, expect to learn and receive assistance , and feel supported in their efforts.

If you believe your students are capable they are more likely to work harder

Praise student accomplishment


How to build a positive climate

Discuss instructional goals

Insist students complete work satisfactory

Refuse to accept excuses for poor work

Communicate acceptance of imperfect initial performance when students struggle to achieve new learning

Convey confidence in students’ abilities

Avoid comparative evaluations

Display an encouraging “Can Do” attitude that generates student self-confidence Slide16

Rewards and Incentives- Ms. Candice Duncan Slide17

Improving Class Climate Through Incentive or Rewards

Incentives or rewards can help build a positive climate

The incentives add interest or excitement to the class routine while directing attention toward appropriate behavior and away from inappropriate behavior.

When rewarded and not punished, students are more likely to respond positively to the teacher.

Before using incentives, check your school’s policy. Slide18

Improving Class Climate Through Incentive or Rewards

Rewards should target behaviors you want to encourage

Have simple procedures for incentives

Make sure all students are able to achieve the incentive

Types of incentives:

Symbols: grades, gold star

Recognition: giving attention to the student, displaying work

Activities: free time, work with a friend, class party or trip

Materials: awarding objects of value to students

CAUTION: receiving a reward reduces intrinsic motivation to complete a task if extrinsic reward is no longer available

Verbal praise and positive feedback help enhance student’s intrinsic motivationSlide19

A big

thank you

to Mrs. Rachael Pavey who created this wonderful PowerPoint. She more than contributed her part! Slide20

Group Activity

At your table, develop a skit that is either a good representation or a bad representation of the topic on your group’s index card.

You have 5 minutes to create a skit that should be about 1 minute long.

You will present these to the class for a formative assessment!
